Finally the internet has cooperated and allowed me to actually log into my blog…

School has been in session for a few weeks now and the kids are getting settled into the new routine.  Mikah is loving high school and the new opportunities it offers.  Last week the entire high school spent two nights at the beach.  There was a guest speaker and the kids were split into groups for discussions and cooking meals etc…  They all had a great time!

During the first full week of school I had the pleasure of substitute teaching for some elementary, middle school and high school classes.   Turns out that subbing is kinda fun…

This past week I had the pleasure of driving for a school trip for Brynne’s class.  Each year there is a literacy fair in a nearby city.  I had always wondered what it was all about so when the opportunity to drive came up I took it.  R came along with as she recently took a course on literacy with one of the organizers of the fair.  The whole thing was supposed to start at 9:00 and we were there at 9:30.  By the photo of the room you can see there weren’t all that many people there.  At 10:00 they opened with a little song by a class of kids.  That was followed by a terrible speech by some guy who talked about things that had nothing to do with literacy, like how before special “autonomy” from the national government men had one wife and one house and now they have two wives and two houses…  Then there was a little presentation by the kids that have costumes on.  Very few of the kids actually knew what they were supposed to do.  Then there was another incredibly boring speech by a gov’t official…  By then Brynne’s class had had enough and we took them outside for a snack and then we headed back to school.  So,  not exactly what was hoped for (there were activities planned but because of the speeches they started super late).  Brynne called it the boringest field trip ever…  🙂

Yesterday I decided to finally, after five years, make use of the canning stuff I’d shipped over from Canada and I made salsa…  hope it tastes good after all that work…

Yesterday was also the first game of the season for the girls JV volleyball team that I am co-coaching with another Canadian gal.  The girls lost both sets but played well.
